David, Greg, and the female guitar teacher ( I have forgotten her name ) were all very welcoming and offered great insight into my son's advancement with his guitar and drum playing. He can't wait for his next lesson. Regards, Baron Baker

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Hey there! I'm a multi-instrumentalist with a strong foundation in Guitar, Bass, and Drums.

My lessons are curated behind a few things:
-the understanding of music theory (scales, chord progressions, rhythmic structure, song composition etc.)
-student's requests to learn specific songs and creating original song
-having FUN!

Because in my experience, you're not learning if you're not enjoying what you're doing.

After 6 years, of playing drums, I began my time as a guitar player. I grew as a guitar player tremendously fast because of my understanding and practice of rhythm. I began as an acoustic/folk guitarist, progressed into a blues/funk guitarist, and now play mainly jazz and neo-soul. I also am accustomed to teach many other genres. I now write, produce, and perform my own music and stream online.

When you take lessons with me you can expect that the lessons will increase your music theory knowledge, finger/hand dexterity, rhythm, ear training, performance abilities, and if

My daughter went to Kevin for instructions on guitar. She had no experience, no guitar, and we weren’t sure if she’d like it. Kevin gave us affordable suggestions for a guitar to buy, and she has looked forward to his lessons each week. She really wanted to learn how to play an Adele song and after a few weeks she has mastered it. Kevin is personable, reasonable, intelligent, and thoughtful. I’ve been recommending him to our friends who have children that have been considering lessons.

Kevin is great! i’ve been playing drums in bands for 15 years and took a couple lessons with him to tighten some things up! i learned a lot of great things from Kevin. made me a better drummer!

Kevin worked with me on drums for a few months and was incredibly patient with me as he helped breakdown songs bit by bit, was super encouraging along the way, and extremely fun to be around. I couldn't recommend him enough!!

I took guitar lessons with Jameson for over a year, and I don't regret it! He's a talented musician and a great teacher. In particular, I really appreciated his willingness to go as fast or as slow as I needed, his deep understanding of music theory, his enthusiasm for using music as a way to bring people together, and his generally humble and relaxed disposition. 10/10, would recommend.

I am a technique-focused teacher insofar as making sure any student of mine is avoiding bad and sometimes unhealthy habits in their playing. I do, however, try to find fun ways to work on technique, with the end goal being playing repertoire that is fun for the student. I believe technical exercises have their place in learning any instrument, but that it's important to spend the majority of your practice time on material which is ultimately enjoyable to play.

I do have certain sets of books I like to follow depending on the student's interests, but I am always happy to tweak the lesson plan to fit the student's needs.
In my current position at Vanderbilt, I teach music technology classes, and I am involved in the occasional performance with other faculty members as a classical guitarist. Outside of that, I run a small mixing studio called Tango Sound Studios. I'm also an avid 3D printing enthusiast and lover of indie sci-fi books.

About Joshua

Hi there! My name is Josh, and I'd love to be your guitar teacher! I've been playing guitar since I was eight, starting out playing rock and roll, then focusing on classical training for my college career. In both undergraduate and graduate school, I studied classical composition as a classical gui

Andrea
My son Jake wanted to learn some Boston songs that my husband always plays, and Josh was the perfect teacher for him! Jake had been playing 2 years when we found Josh. I was impressed by his ability to make stuff like technique and scales fun for students. Highly recommend!
Scott
My middle son took an interest in classical guitar and Josh was perfect to get him going. We bought the books recommended by Josh which gave my son the basics. Josh follows the pace of the student and was flexible when teaching from books.
Julie
I wanted to learn more than just the basic chords and Josh was a great teacher! He explains things in a way that's easy to understand. I took guitar lessons when I was little and he helped me to build on what I already knew. He also encouraged me to pick songs I wanted to learn rather than stick to a book. Scheduling was easy and he's really responsive to messages.

Hey! Nothing matters to me more than the music community, and especially the local music community. It's important for me to understand my students individually and create lesson plans that are tailored to the individual. Learning is meant to be fun. I love using references, analogies, and tools that match the student, creating a learning environment that is very comfortable. What makes me unique is I often follow up my students through text or phone call to assess learning. It's important to me to follow up throughout the week and answer questions at anytime. I like to think of my students as friends!

About Chivan

Hey! My music journey began 9 years ago, when I learned my first Taylor Swift song on the guitar. Fast forward, I was able to translate my music knowledge into ukulele, bass, music theory, ear-training, percussion, and piano. After receiving my Associates in Arts at South Puget Sound Community Co

Chivan was a great teacher! I have some basic music background but he was able to make chords and music theory sound simple. He helped me with my technique and my playing got much better! Would recommend him to anyone :)

Chivan is excellent! I highly recommend his lessons.
Micaiah
Chivan is a fantastic guitar teacher, and not to mention a rockstar! He’s very laid back and relaxed when he teaches, makes you feel very comfortable and doesn’t have a hint of judgement about him. 10/10 would take lessons from him again.

"As an adult, I came to him as a complete novice, and since day one Noah has been very patient and encouraging- balancing music theory with songs that interest me. He's been willing to adapt to my needs in order to accommodate my goals and expectations. A few months later, I can confidently say that I've exceeded all of my goals, and constantly advancing past what I thought I was capable of.

Thanks Noah!"

"David is not only a great musician and educator but also a delightful human. We began using David six years ago as a piano teacher for my two boys. Since then my eldest moved on to acoustic and electric guitar and my youngest electric and stand up bass. Somewhere along the way I began to take guitar lessons also (I was David's most bearded student at age 48). David always came prepared to lead but also to follow, he often asked what we were listening to and taught us how to play it. His ability to listen to a piece of music and transcribe it always left me amazed, we have several notebooks full of songs we learned individually or played as a group. After a shoulder injury David continued to impress by teaching me music theory instead of our usual lesson. I could go on forever, David made a positive impact on my family and feel fortunate to have met him."

"Highly recommended! Classes are fun and I learned tons. Carla designed my lessons according to my background, pace and goal. Her method of teaching is effective, and in my case has resulted in achieving my goal in a short period of time - being able to play some of the songs from the radio. I needed to move out of state or else I'd definitely take more lessons. Carla described that "the lessons are all about you," and she truly delivered it.

She is very professional and responsible. She challenges you to learn but doesn't make you feel bad or have much pressure. Her classes were never boring maybe because they were all the stuff I want to learn or need to learn, and none of the things that I don't care about."
